evangotlib: I’m on a business trip in Detroit right now. And as everyone knows the key to a successful business trip is collar stays. And I forgot mine at home. With no time to spare and no stores open before my first meeting I sprung into action. I scanned my hotel room for options and material. Nothing…. Coffee Stirs, Straws, business cards, a dime, and hotel room key are all items...
5432: “White Collar Brawler” is a webseries by friends/classmates Kai and Nate. It looks great, and I’m excited for them. It’ll be interesting to see how this strong docuseries format matures — white collar guys learning how to box? Could make a great transition to TV, but is there something uniquely webby about it?
